Hi Bryan Here….

Actress/Producer/Director Drew Barrymore will direct and produce a new film from Warner Bros. called ‘Heist Society’.  This film is based on a book by Ally Carter.  There was a multi-studio bidding war going on for the rights for this film.  Let’s hope Warner made the right decision.  Barrymore directed the critically acclaimed ‘Whip It’ about the Roller Derby game.

“The book ‘Heist Society’ follows a young woman named Katarina Bishop who hails from an extended family of cat burglars and master thieves. The girl leaves her illicit life behind, but when her father is the prime suspect in the case of a mobster’s missing art collection, she assembles a crew to track down the art and steal it back.”

Shauna Cross will adapt and pen the screenplay.  Shauna wrote ‘Whip It’ which Drew Barrymore was a part of and wrote the upcoming ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’.  Warner will be upping the age of the characters to 20 somethings for the film adaptation.  I’m not sure what to expect from this, but I’m thinking or hoping for an ‘Ocean’s 11′ type of film, but I think I will be wrong in that assumption.

Your thoughts?

Movie Quotes

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007)
Narrator:
And so it went, Jesse was increasingly cavalier. Merry, moody, fey, unpredictable. He camouflaged his depressions and derangements with masquerades of extreme cordiality, courtesy, and goodwill towards others. But Even as he jested or tickled his boy in the ribs, Jesse would look over at Bob with melancholy eyes as if the two were meshed in an intimate communication. Bob was certain that the man had unriddled him; had seen through his reasons for coming along; that Jesse could forecast each of Bob's possible moves and inclinations and was only acting the innocent in order to lull Bob into a stupid tranquility and miscalculation.
